Microsoft announced Windows a few days ago Store, which will take applications for its next operating system, Windows 8. However, in the last few hours has come controversy, following the announcement that the company can remotely delete applications that users install on your computer “for security reasons.”
One of the great innovations of Windows 8 will be the app store. Microsoft wants to open a hole in this new market and succeed in the mobile sector. Good faith can do with your Apple iPhone App Store for iPad and Google with the Android Market for all devices that use their mobile platform. Although Microsoft already has experience with your store for Windows Mobile Phone in 2012 wants to launch a new content platform targeting all computers (both PC and tablets) with its new operating system.
The company justifies this possibility based on, how could it be otherwise, in “security reasons”. “In those cases where your safety is at risk or ask us for legal reasons, you can not run applications or access content previously purchased or purchased through a license,” explained in the above conditions of use of the platform to justify This practice, known as the kill switch.
Additionally, the company also announced that users would return to the application money on acting, something at least fair. Thus, the U.S. giant follow the steps in the conditions of Apple and Google, which already apply to remove the kill switch, for example, applications that may contain malware. On the way Microsoft will work to support the Windows Store content it looks like it will be a little more iron than Google but without reaching the end of Apple applications that supports or rejects the App Store.
The first reactions from the community of users will not have to wait and see the condition imposed by the Redmond Company as a direct interference and intrusive. Do you think Microsoft needs to ensure in this way for the “safety” of users?
